SaveOurState.org is calling for the removal of a monument in the city of Baldwin Park, CA at the Metrolink Rail Station by July 1, 2005. Why are they calling for it's removal? Well see the pictures below.
I think any US citizen would find such a thing appalling. Somehow this taxpayer funded monument actually made it all the way to display on public property without anyone stepping forward and saying a thing.
If this monument is not removed then SaveOurState.org intends to form a protest. If you would like to lodge a complaint or let your displeasure be known, head over to SaveOurState for contact information.
I have covered SaveOurState in the past including 2 rally's against Home Depot (overview and pics here and here). For all posts on Diggers Realm about SaveOurState click here.
The Indians kind of have a point; albeit a moot one. But the Mexicans can shut the heck up. Complaining that "The Anglos" stole part of their country is like stealing a car, getting carjacked and then calling the cops. As the kids today are so fond of saying; "n***ah please!"
The simple fact is; modern day Mexicans are descended from European conquerors, just like their Norteamericano cousins above the Rio Grande. The only significant differences between the Mexicans and the Americans is language and the fact that Mexicans tend to tan better.
Yes, it's true that Europeans stole this continent from it's indigenous people. Europeans have been doing that sort of thing for thousands of years, beginning with the time they stole Europe from the Neanderthals. Heck, if you want to get technical; it's those damn Africans that have been stealing land for the last hundred thousand years or so!
Now matter how you slice it, there is NOBODY alive today that participated in the activities the monument is complaining about. This is the situation we ALL inherited. So now we have a choice; we can p*ss & moan about it, or we can make the best of the cards we have been dealt and move ON. You know... be PROGRESSIVE...?
Its really about the monument, and the sick stuff they printed on it. Thats all. If you start talking about history, you are just opening up an arguement when there is none.
The fact that it was done with taxpayer money, under the guise of it being cultural poetry, is a 10x multiplier of the sickness level. It makes it all the more infuriating.
We will be there on the 4th of July if this sickening insult to America is not removed prior to that. It it has to be just me, my family, and my BBQ grillin the Mexican flag, then so be it. If you live within a couple of hours driving distance and do not show up...then zip your armchair activist blow hole and post no more...your a joke, and we are useless if we dont do something on this one.

It's "You're", not "Your" in regards to your comment about my being "A Joke"
Furthermore, I live a little under 2,500 miles away, so unless you plan to buy me a plane ticket; you might want to shut YOUR "armchair activist blow hole".
I'm not the one who erected the monument, nor am I the one who chose to inscribe that nonsense on it. Whatever problem you have with those who DID, I suggest you explain it to THEM instead of taking it out on me, just because I made some observations regarding the humor of one set of European conquerors complaining about another set of of European conquerors stealing their stolen land.
Hello, 911...? Someone stole my dope!
One last thing, which it appears your Daddy never taught you. When you INSULT and DENIGRATE the person you are speaking to, you give that person an excuse to stop listening to your viewpoint.

Since YOUR so touchy,(like I really need YOUR grammar correction, I shortin stff constnly on the internet, becuz I actually bother to type things here n thre.)I will bother to explain it word for word that I am talking 'YOUR' in the overall sense. How could you not pick up on that? Also, sorry, didnt have a daddy in this world.
"Furthermore" , if you bother to read what I wrote correctly , grammar boy, then you will see that I in no way am expecting anyone to fly anywhere. It is just there are plenty of people that talk big in Los Angeles, but when it comes to it, they do not come to any of the rallies that are staged against illegal immigration, or other activist causes.
I would say all in all YOU need bother to read what is really there instead of being womanish in your perceptions of what people write.

Why dosent anyone ask the Mexicans why they dont make their country accountable for being such a hell hole of a country? We have to stop childeren born by illegal aliens becoming US citizens, things have changed other countries have to be accountable for their people. How many illegal Americans are in Mexico getting Mexican tax money?(TRY NONE) US tax money should only go to US citizens. We are going to let Demarcates turn our once great country into a third world country, just like Mexico. Have you gone across the boarder lately its disgusting, we will become Mexico if we dont stop it now. Either make Mexico the 51st state or close the barder. Let any idiot Democrat donate their own money to support all the illegals they want.
Thank you Jim Nelson

Mexicans are lying about their role in the American southwest!
They never owned it. They have their own crappy homeland
that's why they are always sneaking in and must cross a border to do so.
Mexicans stole the land from the Spanish and Indians.
THIS LAND BELONGED TO THE AMERICAN INDIAN.
Or haven't you noticed that Mexicans have no reservations.
How dare they continue to lie to everyone!
They look so stupid ranting in Baldwin Park.
At least the Americans fixed it up.
